InDiGo is the RSC 2015 colour this month.
I used a few indigo...a few deep purple...& a few royal/purplish blue as I don't have a lot of scraps in indigo. I also made a few "filler" blocks as I will need lots of BoW TiE blocks to complete a full sized quilt.
I think all these BoW TiE blocks will work in the scrappy quilt though.
Thanks to Angela...HERE at So Scrappy blog for organising us each month.
I am up-to-date & patiently waiting for Septembers' colour to be released.

I sewed these 10 blocks last night at Friday Night Sew In...
with Wendy... over HERE ... at Sugarlane Designs.
Thanks Wendy once again...
It was FuN...

MaKinG AddiTions

To My STaSH...  so look at just SoMe... & I mean some.. yippee & WooHoo... of the fabric that I have recently purchased from my LQS in Belmont that is closing down at the end of September.
Ohhhh NooooOO... I'm completely devastated to say the least!
This shop has been wonderful & the owners so very helpful... I still cannot believe it!
So at FNSI tonight... after sewing a few blocks... I'll be stroking it & then cutting some of it up for a few projects I have on the go at the moment. I hope you'll join Wendy & her friends AT FNSI too.

means Christmas Thru The Year... & it's hosted by Anthea from over HERE.
My item this month is this small wall hanging in blue & green.
It was designed by Michelle Ridgway from Rag-Tag Stitchin'...  although I did change the colours.
You can obtain a copy of the pattern from Michelle over HeRe.
The wall hanging measures approx 17 inch x 14 inch overall.
I wasn't able to complete this last month as I was away in the caravan without a machine...but it's all finished now & waiting in the Christmas gift box!
Thanks Anthea...
For hosting us each month.

It's ShaGGy

and it's SoFt and very CuDDLy too.
I used some flannel fabrics I had on hand & made this baby girl cover-up. It was designed to be used while she is in her capsule... either in the car &/or stroller.
It measures approx 24 inch square... & will keep her warm & cosy.
Of course the more it is washed ... the more fluffy or frilly it will become.
I also used a very soft pastel pink dotty flannel for the backing.

Of Course I couldn't make just OnE...
So here is a capsule cover for a BaBy BoY... in blue flannels...

I used a "bobble" minky for the backing on this one... & each square is 6 inch square... as I had already cut these for another project earlier... so they are larger than the 5 inch PiNk ones above.
Again, with washing, the cover will get frilly.
